Black Mass (2015) (HNR)
"A compelling, true-life tale of power, loyalty, betrayal and ruin."
Rafer Guzman, Newday.
In 1970s South Boston, FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James "Whitey" Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI in order to eliminate their common enemy: the Italian mob. Black Mass tells the story of this unholy alliance, which spiralled out of control, allowing Bulger to evade law enforcement while escalating his power to become one of the most notorious gangsters in U.S. history. -- (C) Warner Bros, 2015, USA/UK.
